Blue Steel M9 Bayonet
This is a REAL KNIFE, hand painted and made to order. Note a Vanilla bayonet is pictured but this listing is for the M9
Based off the Survivor brand bayonet.
First the old paint is sandblasted off to create better adhesion. Then the surface is cleaned using metal prep which also helps the paint adhere. Then a self-etching primer is used that eats into the metal a little bit to get a strong bond. Then a few coats of dark metallic paint are spray painted, and a clear blue over that. Finally the knife is finished with Imron, a durable clear finish commonly used on NASCAR. The resulting finish is as durable as they come, about as resilient as a car paint job. It will resist most small scratches. Scratching rocks, metal or other hard objects will damage the paint. As a decorative piece, the finish should last nearly forever. With heavy use, expect heavy wear.
